We are really talking about promoting Thorn to Director of Rugby? Anyone familiar with the Dilbert Principle?
Reds should be looking for a competent experienced head coach, getting Thorn back to an assistant coach role where he should have been for the whole time while he learns how to be a pro...
The 6N organisers are not allowing joint bids this time around.
A joint bid between ITV and the BBC was enough to outbid Sky last time, but it looks as though they are structuring the bids this time around to make sure there's only one possible winner.

And just to add, check out who the former CEO of the premiership works for now. Mark McCafferty negotiated the sale to CVC, promptly resigned and went to work for them.
Anyone fully confident that our administrators would never do such a thing?
Cricket showed the way
CVC did it with F1. They'll do it with rugby. They'll do it here if we let them ( though I doubt they're interested in our potential revenue, it's our players and opposition for their revenue generating teams that they'll want.)
